The PDM program provides funds to states, territories, tribal governments, local communities and universities to assist efforts to implement a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program. PDM is a nationally competitive annual grant opportunity through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) The goal is to reduce overall risk to the population and structures from future hazard events, while also reducing reliance on Federal funding in future disasters. This program awards planning and project grants and provides opportunities for raising public awareness about reducing future losses before disaster strikes.
